Popular Christian fast food chain Chick-fil-A is offering a different kind of menu item for its sandwiches during the liturgical season of Lent.
For Roman Catholics, eating meat is not allowed for Ash Wednesday and Fridays during Lent, with fish being considered an acceptable substitute.
In an announcement made earlier this month describing that what it called “fin-tastic news,” Chick-fil-A, which is owned by a Southern Baptist family, said that it was bringing back its Chick-fil-A fish sandwich just in time for Lent.
Selected locations of the chicken sandwich chain began offering the dining option on Wednesday, which was the beginning of Lent, and will continue to do so until Saturday, April 20, the day before Easter.
“The fish sandwich will join the Chick-fil-A menu, along with the Deluxe Fish Sandwich and boxed 2- and 3-count fish entrees and meals, served with Waffle Potato Fries,” explained Chick-fil-A.
“The sandwiches are 370 and 430 calories, while the 2- and 3-count boxes are 190 and 280 calories, respectively.”
Chick-fil-A also created a web page to help patrons locate the restaurants which will be serving their seasonal fish sandwich.
